Sony and Canon battle to become the new full frame cinema camera champion. Let’s look more closely at the new FX9 and the C500 Mark II and compare them side by side.
Much has been said about Sigma’s new cinema lenses – both good and bad. Particularly their high speed zooms, the 18-35 T2 and 50-100 T2. Sigma recently loaned me a pair of the zooms and so I took the opportunity to get to the bottom of things.
Thermal imaging was made famous by Predator in 1987. It’s more recently been seen in Sicario and Planet Earth II. I look at the current state of thermal cameras and how viable it is for filmmakers to use this unique technology.
Some time ago now, I was in the market for a set of high quality lenses for cinema use and investigated the various offerings available.
It’s now been over a year that I’ve spent with Sony’s curvy camera, so what better time than to reflect on how it’s performed and how it fits in today’s ever changing market.
